One more addition to the burgeoning [?] collection of vinyl car wrap art comes from Canada. And it’s early, too. Post-Max, to be sure, but definitely pre-Koons and -Hirst.
Kelly Jazvac was commissioned by the Toronto Sculpture Garden to create Upgrade in 2007. Using only vinyl wrap inside and out, Jazvac magically transformed a used 1998 Pontiac Sunbird into a brand new 2007 Porsche 911. It’s amazing. It looks just like it. If it weren’t for the occasional creases and puckering around the door handle, you could never tell.
